Community and the AUR are two separate entities, which happen to work
together. One would assume it's fairly trivial to checkout a directory
from CVS, and create a tarball from it to upload to the AUR exactly as
one would submit a package normally. It is impossible to "restore" it
because it was completely removed from the AUR when you moved it to
the community repo.

Not possible. As I said, the votes were lost when the package was
removed from the AUR by the simple fact of it moving to community.
